How do I get started?
Will I get information to help me?
Yes, we are providing induction and the essential information to keep you safe.
Will I be part of a team?
We are developing some specific teams where this helps provide continuity so you may become part of a team within a team. But all our volunteers are a team together and there are team wide communications and mutual support.
How much time do I have to offer?
We will follow your lead. We are not asking volunteers to do more than they can. But we do need volunteers to do what they say they will do. Of course, what you can do might change over time because of illness, the need to self-isolate or other changing circumstances. At this stage none of us can predict what will happen over the next few weeks and months. We are expecting to operate the Malmesbury Town Council and HEALS partnership for at least three months.
